Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Wehrle
RWTH Aachen University
- I am supporting the following activities. Please consider supporting them:
Klaus started his studies in Computer Science (Informatik) at University of Karlsruhe in 1993, and graduated with the Diploma degree "Dipl.-Inform." (with honors) in March 1999. Then, he joined the Institute of Telematics (Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Gerhard Krüger) at University of Karlsruhe as research assistant. In July 2002 he received his doctoral degree (with honors) for his dissertation on flexible and scalable quality-of-service mechanisms for the next generation Internet, which was awarded with the 2002 Doctoral Dissertation Award of Südwestmetall Association and the 2002 FZI Doctoral Dissertation Award (Research Center for Information Technologie, FZI).
Supported by a grant from German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Klaus and his family moved to Berkeley/California in August 2002, where he joined the ICIR networking group at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) as postdoctoral fellow in the area of Peer-to-Peer networking and overlay networks. Attracted by an Emmy-Noether-Grant from German Science Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft), Klaus came back to Germany in September 2003 to set up an independant DFG-Emmy-Noether-Junior Research Group in the area of Protocol-Engineering and Distributed Systems at University of Tübingen. The junior research group got additional funding from Landesstiftung Baden-Württemberg and Microsoft Research.
In April 2006, Klaus became professor of Computer Science (Distributed Systems) at RWTH Aachen University. In November 2007, he was awarded Junior Researcher of the year 2007 by the German Association of Professors. Since August 2010, Klaus Wehrle is head of the chair of Communication and Distributed Systems (Computer Science IV) at RWTH Aachen University. Since 2010, he is member of the German Academy of Science and Engineering (Acatech).
Klaus is a member of IEEE, ACM, Sigcomm, SCS, GI (German Informatics Society) and GI/ITG-Fachgruppe KuVS (also serving as member of the KuVS Steering Committee). His research activities are focused on (but not limited to) engineering of networking protocols, implementation techniques for protocols, formal description techniques for protocols, quality of service, multicast, network simulation, peer-to-peer-networking as well as all operating system issues of networking.
A small note for potential applicants
Please note: The DS Team is a very open-minded and technology-oriented research group. But, since we are receiving dozens of (mostly unserious spam) applications per week, we are only accepting applications sent in by non-electronic mail. eMail applications will neither be processed, nor answered, nor accepted.
eMail applications of any kind will be deleted immediately!
If you are seriously considering to apply for a position (researcher, PhD student, teaching assistant, internship, student research assistant) within the DS Team, please spend the small amount of postage for sending your application by mail - you will definitely get an answer. Many thanks for your cooperation!
